Imipramine, Tryptophan, Sertraline combination.

Posted by Exisessentialist on April 20, 2012, at 16:12:25

Hello, all. I've been taking 200 mg of sertraline for approximately three weeks and 8 grams of tryptophan for that duration, as well. My psychiatrist recently recommended adding imipramine at 25 mg three times daily in an attempt to remit my treatment-resistant depression. Does anyone have any experience with this combination? I've recently read some interesting information on this and other boards about combining TCA's and SSRI's with some benefit but I'm curious if this combination is generally safe and advisable to take. Thank you.

Welcome to Psychobabble!

I have no experience with that particular combination of medication, but can attest to the fact that polypharmacy can work where individual meds are not effective enough by themselves.

I currently take Nortriptyline, Lamictal, prescription Melatonin and a sprinkling of Lithium.

I've asked a mod to move this to the medication sub-forum as I think you'll get more responses there.

Thank you. I actually just re-posted it there because I wasn't sure if I was posting it in the right area. Thank you for your response!
